Our home venue, Hayko's Turkish Carpets, is in danger of closing down...
So, to avert this tragedy, EIGHT of our group's most loved musicians are putting on this all-star BENEFIT CONCERT!
Hayko's has been the home of our monthly Culture Circle, as well as our Intimate Nights of Music series, for three years now.
However, as antique carpets are considered a luxury item in this economy, his carpet sales have slowed down significantly, forcing Hayko to rely more on his store's income from hosting arts/music events like ours...
This large event is designed to increase Hayko's profile as an arts venue, get the word out about his carpets, raise a little money, and get some media attention for his store in the process.
*Each person who attends shall also be entered into a drawing to win an authentic antique Turkish Carpet from Hayko's, valued near $1,000.00!
EARN BIG MONEY - REFERRAL OFFER:
REFER someone to Hayko's and EARN a 5% COMMISSION!
Any referral which leads to the sale of a carpet earns a 5% commission. With carpet prices ranging from $500.00 to $20,000.00, a 5% commission can be QUITE A BIT of dough!
